Wonderful place to have "down home" cooking. Friendly servers. Food is always great. Fried Chicken is fried after you order it, meat loaf is like your Mama used to make!

Rosie does a great job with home style favorites. A little known fact is the high quality catering she does for the school hospitality room. Her chicken strips are legendary and demanded by everyone! You will not be disappointed!

This is "the" local diner to eat at in Ozark. Rooster decor, country cookin. If they are busy, you will wait awhile for your food, very popular for breakfast and the dinner specials. Fantastic homemade desserts. We purchased our Thanksgiving pies from here this year and will do it again. Many local people call in orders for take out.

You just can't beat eating a great meal at a reasonable price on a family budget. We have never had a bad meal or bad service. Yes, sometimes it might be slow but oh is it worth the wait when you sink your teeth into some of their delicious home cooked meals. We love their burgers and I even love... More

I love the food here, especially the fried chicken. It's really finger lickin' good. However, and that's a big however...the wait is a bit much. We had to wait 45 mins. to get seated, then another 40 minutes for our food. I'd like to say it's worth it, but that wait when you have hungry teens is just too long.... More

Went there on a Sunday morning about 945. Waited for over an hour and still no food. People who had been there before us still didn't have food. Will not be going back

We stopped after our trip to silver dollar city. The food was amazing!!! Reasonably priced and huge portions. The staff was also some of the most friendly and nicest I've met in a long time. Definitely recommend stopping by if your near. Great choice for dinner!

The food was ok but nothing to write home about. The breading on my chicken tenders didn't have much flavor. The strips were grizzly around the edges definitely not tender. Hubby had cat fish and it was mushy. They were very busy and we waited about 45 minutes for our food after ordering. waitress slipped and fell on the wet... More
